Reminder: Just a couple of days ago, during debate, Trump mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask.

Trump has such a negative effect on America, finally there's something positive about him!

Does Trump's Covid diagnosis put a wrecking ball in the Biden campaign?

Things that worry me:

1/ How will it look to be attacking Trump, if he is sick? The Biden campaign will be criticized for it. But meanwhile, Team Trump can keep on attacking Biden.

2/ The same goes for the media. Are they going to go easy on Trump?

3/ Look at what happened to UK's Boris Johnson. His approval SKYROCKETED after he was infected - from 46% to 66% (see the YouGov link below). If Trump got half that, he would win the election.

4/ If Trump is hospitalized and cannot campaign, the right will never accept the result and say Biden won because Trump was incapacitated.

With RBG gone, I fear Trump with the support of Barr will claim Trump the winner on election day.

They will question the legitimacy of the postal votes as those results come in, during the next days, and launch an investigation that will supposedly find widespread fraud. Now the Supreme Court will be stacked in Trump's favor. We then have a dictator installed and become a fully fledged annex of Russia.

Funeral during a pandemic - your advice wanted.

My wife has arranged (with her brother and friends) an indoor memorial service for her mother, in a large hall. We are in a top 10 state for cases and deaths, and a lot of folk from around the worst hit counties. I would rather not reveal every detail to maintain anonymity.

So, we expect around 40 people and there's going to be a memorial service that is supposed to be socially distanced and we have asked that people wear masks, although some known anti-masker Trump supporters will be in attendance, at least one very outspoken against masks.

There's going to be a reception afterwards with food and drink. Obviously, people won't be able to wear masks at that point if they are eating. I feel very uncomfortable with this. My anxiety is through the roof about it. I know other people ignore common sense and that is why 200,000 people have died. How many bodies does it take to do the right thing?

What advice would you give me. I have already argued with my wife and achieved nothing. Should I just go with the flow? Should I insist that there shouldn't be a food and drink reception? If so, what can I say to my wife in a way that she will understand? Or what should I do? Thanks in advance for your advice.





There were 10 Benghazi inquiries, why no pre-election inquiry into Trump's coronavirus response?

4 died in Benghazi and 10, yes 10 investigations, compared to 194,624 (officially) dead of coronavirus and rising, and a president who has lied about it, downplayed it, and made it much worse.

RNC to be completely overshadowed by devastating Hurricane Laura

God bless all those affected.



Updated at 2 a.m. ET Wednesday

Hurricane Laura is "rapidly intensifying" and will make landfall late Wednesday or early Thursday as a major hurricane, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Laura is currently a Category 2 storm with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph. Forecasters predict a storm surge from 9 to 14 feet when it strikes near the Louisiana-Texas border.

The storm surge estimates are "staggering amounts, life-threatening amounts," NHC Director Ken Graham said.

Could Rasmussen (51% approval) be more obvious that it is trying to help Trump?

As the GOP convention starts, Rasmussen has Trump at 51% approval. 10 points higher than Trump's average approval with other polling organizations. What an amazing coincidence!

Coronavirus fatigue - voters getting used to a new normal - polls tightening.

Just an observation, looking at 538, that polls have tightened a little in the last week. Trump's approval has improved, not looking like he will dip below 40%, he's a little tighter with Biden, state polls a little tighter, slim leads have gone in Georgia and Texas.

It seems over one thousand dying a day of Covid isn't shocking enough. We all know that Trump is responsible for most of the deaths. We know examples that show he is mentally incapable of uniting America or helping to solve our problems. We know the damage he has caused to America and our relationship with our allies. But what do you think the Biden campaign need to do to get the message across?
